Duane Eugene Long

December 9, 1965 — February 23, 2024


Duane Eugene Long, a cherished father, son, brother and friend, passed away peacefully on February 23, 2024, in Greenville, SC. Born on December 9, 1965, in Pickens, SC, Duane was a man known for his friendly demeanor, creative spirit, and thoughtful nature. He was a beacon of light in the lives of all who knew him, and his presence will be deeply missed.

Duane was the beloved son of William Eugene Long and Mary Bledsoe, and a cherished stepson to Lillian Long. His life was a testament to the power of love and family. Surviving are his daughter Cristin Michelle Long, brother Rob (Marty)Long, sister Lisa Lawson (Micky), stepbrother Clayton Fritts.

Known affectionately as Duane to his friends and family, he was a man of many talents. He spent his working years as a skilled carpenter and painter, professions that allowed him to express his creativity and leave a lasting impression on the world around him. Duane's work ethic and attention to detail in his craft were admired by all who had the pleasure of working alongside him or enjoying the fruits of his labor.

Beyond his professional life, Duane was an avid fisherman. He found peace and solace in the tranquility of nature, with a fishing rod in hand and the calm waters before him. His love for fishing was more than a hobby; it was a reflection of his appreciation for life's simple pleasures and his ability to find joy in the moment.

Duane's character was defined by his friendliness. He greeted everyone with a warm smile and an open heart, making lasting connections wherever he went. His thoughtfulness was evident in the careful consideration he gave to the needs and feelings of others. Duane's legacy is one of kindness, generosity, and a willingness to lend a helping hand to those in need.

As we bid farewell to Duane Eugene Long, we celebrate a life well-lived and a man dearly loved. His spirit and memory will continue to inspire and guide us. We take solace in knowing that his journey was filled with love, laughter, and meaningful relationships. Duane's influence will forever be felt in the lives of his family, friends, and all who had the privilege of knowing him.

Duane's life will be honored in a private ceremony, where his family and close friends will gather to share memories and celebrate the joy he brought into their lives. His passing leaves a void that can never be filled, but the memories he created will be cherished forever. Though our hearts are heavy with loss, we are comforted by the knowledge that Duane's legacy of love, creativity, and kindness will endure.
